Down and Derby

Friday, May 2, 2008

Saturday, May 3rd is Kentucky Derby Day. Why not celebrate with your own Derby party? Even an impromptu get together or family gathering will get the kids in the spirit. Make Derby Pie (save the Bourbon for the mom and dad, of course), put on your big hat and have everyone choose a horse and watch the race. Or, get some neighborhood kids together and have your own backyard race. Let the kids create and decorate their own Derby silks that mimic the race team they've chosen. Tape them on and let them gallop around a predetermined track. If the weather doesn't cooperate, you could conjure up a game of Derby themed charades. The possibilities are endless. Here's a KY unit I found that will give you some inspiration and the official link for the Derby 134. Have fun!
